8:16 am
level, extrapolated totals out, 4400-yard so numbers are fine the problem is he needs to control his offence and not turn the football over and he has never been able to cut down on turn overs. >> he says he will work on that this year not the same risk taker he has been in years past and we believe he can change his stripes. >> it is hard to assume that will be the case he said that in the past and never been able to. 34 starts, 41 games in the league under his belt at this point he may be what he is the question becomes, do you go with that high risk and try to make big plays or reel in this offence a little bit and coaching stuff does it expect beck to protect the football even if yards may shrink. >> let's talk about john beck he has the groin situation it would be smart to hold him out is there something we need to worry about long term? >> i think just bad timing. this is not any kind of lengthy
8:17 am
enquiry he told me last couple days pain has gone away. >> it rolls out. >> right quarterbacks coach says one thing that separates beck from the rest of the guys in camp is athleticism and mobility. if he can't do those things friday night you can't allow him to play because not only is he hurting the offence. >> can't do it. >> year two with the shanahans, kyle running offence and mike. do you think they will pick up offence better in year two than one. >> i think they have to there is a camaraderie now that wasn't here continuity especially along the offensive line trent williams should play better than his rookie season. corey struggled last year he is the guy they are expecting because of his athleticism and his own steam to improve immensely they are updating the right guard, still questions
8:18 am
about montgomery taking over, offensive line is where they have to make their biggest drive last year their quarterbacks were hurried, second mostly in nfl only the jacksonville jaguars did a worse job they didn't run the ball effectively enough, kyle shanahan said that is what they want to do. >> grant you have been out here a couple years covering this team day in and day out what is the best part about being a red skins. >> doing something i enjoy if i wasn't out here i would be online watching your programs and following the tweets because i love football. i just signed up last night for my fifth fantasy not ball league. >> at that particular time ski geek >> i don't do well in any of them. >> i multitask too much i don't know how many red skins i will have. >> because you are always with the players yesterday you were hounded for autographs. >> i signed an autograph a guy
8:19 am

8:33 am
great boost to local stores and families -- boost to local stores and families, hammered by the recession and now the debt down grade and stock market falling this is a little ray of good light from the state of maryland to constituents we hope people come from virginia and the district and take advantage it is a good deal buy 10 items or 20 items as long as they are under $100 you don't pay the 6% sales tax. >> a couple questions to follow up, first you don't have to be a maryland resident. >> no, come on in and shop in our wonderful state from this sunday, to the following saturday august 14th to 20th. >> let's talk about the mind set that goes into this we have seen and you have mentioned the tax losses are petty substantial, talking about $15 million some other states and areas, decided to do away with it they felt that was too strong what was the mind set in
8:34 am
maryland. >> i think the mind set was just to help citizens because, obviously the economy is bad and help small retailers that sell foot ware and clothing the problem we are facing now is that consumers look at the stock market they look at debt down grade for the united states government first time in history, look at unemployment in maryland and it rattles them we want to give them a break give them a reason to come and shop, open their wallets up and get people to come back and maybe there will be some return shopping but we are pretty sure that it is a good deal for the state, based on the increased economic activity. >> last couple years we have been wrecked and all over the place how are things now, you know, before we looked at the disaster we saw yesterday on the stock market but how have things been coming back around or are we still facing problems. >> like the federal government we are spending too much, borrowing too much right on the edge adds far as all our credit limits frankly i think the
8:35 am
political system in washington broken like it is it has a ripple effect down into the state of maryland. we are watching it closely in maryland, like some other states, we have not paid enough attention to the private sector economy and job development, we have been focused on the public sector, we need to shift now and get as much attention paid to private sector as possible keep taxes down keep spending and debt down to extend we can get our public budgets in order but most of all just help businesses and instead of being kind of adversary, help them create jobs we have a real serious unemployment problem in maryland. >> not just unemployment but bigger problem with the economy when we see what happened here in washington on the federal level you mentioned the trickle down when it comes to mu any bonds, will -- muni bonds will we see that. >> sadly we worked hard for a triple-a bond rating in maryland through no fault of
8:36 am
our own we will down graded in the future because we are linked like this to the federal government this enormous federal investment in maryland but because of the down grade at the federal level we will likely at some point see a down grade of maryland's state bonds and also, municipal bonds i emphasize once again it is not the public budget, or maryland economy it is the private sector we ignored them in our fascination -- we have not ignored them but concentrate mostly on the public side how much stimulus money we are getting how much federal grants and federal employment, private sector will lead us into economic recovery. >> are reminder of -- a reminder of the good news, information on our website myfoxdc.com thanks for being here once again. >> hopefully the economy turns back around and make your job a little easier. >> we have our fingers crossed. >> back the you.
